Katy Buck, a junior outside hitter for the Towson University volleyball team, has been named a first team selection to the Capital One Academic All-America Division I team by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
She is the only junior on the first team, and the first Tiger since footballer Adam Overbey to have the honor. Five Tigers in all have been chosen for the prestigious first team.
A biology major with a near perfect GPA, this season Buck was also a team co-captain and started all 29 matches. She has received numerous honors, and was recently named the 2012 Colonial Athletic Association Preseason Player of the Year.
“Katy is an extremely dedicated and focused student,” says Towson coach Bruce Atkinson. “She is definitely a deserving recipient of this award.”
